by Viktor E Frankl

François de La Rochefoucauld

"The opinions of our enemies come nearer to the truth about us than do our own opinions."

2. Work on your style

When facing a goal, do you tend to get into a high-drive gear and try to remain there 24/7? Do you operate at a low-drive level most of the time, often having to scurry to the finish line at the last minute?

Based on your tendency, you can proceed in one of the 3 ways:

  • “High drive” category: Give yourself permission to be human, to rest.
  • “Low drive” category: Do at least the minimum before chilling out.
  • “Fluctuating drive” category: Keep an eye on both bounds.
Stop Taking Things Personally
  • When people criticize you or reject you, it has way more to do with them,(their values, their priorities, their life situation) than it does with you.
  • When something you do fails, it doesn’t mean you are a failure as a person; you are a person who happens to fail sometimes.
  • When something tragic happens and you suffer, remember that hardship is part of choosing to live.
